Park Avenue, Wall to Wall: Another location I’ve been wanting to capture is “Park Ave.” in Arches National Park. I’ve wanted to see if I could make an interesting composition in this location. Park Ave. is a trail between large buttes and spires on each side. To include the Milky Way I had to get to the north end of the trail and look south. This is a panorama of approximately 240 degrees, trying to capture the towering walls on each side. I still didn’t capture the feeling of the immense walls on each side, but you can get an idea of the landscape. This is a panorama. The sky was captured at 14 mm, f/2.8, 29 sec., and ISO 4,000. The foreground was captured at 14 mm, f/2.0, 120 sec., and ISO 6400. Images combined in PS. Thanks for looking! Wayne

The world doesn’t really need another photo of Delicate Arch, lol, but it took me multiple tries to get a clean image, so I’m posting it anyway. I have been thwarted by clouds, wildfires, and people, and on one occasion when I took friends there I even found that I forgot to put my camera n my backpack! Note to self: If you forget your camera then you might as well forget the tripod as well. 😳 Anyway, the locations so crowded I started dreading going there. This time everyone went home by 1:00 a.m. and I had the location to myself for 1-2 hours until the clouds rolled in. Yeah!!! By the time I poised in the arch the clouds had arrived, so I removed my silhouette from the cloudy photo and placed it into the clear sky photo, so this is a blend. Thanks for looking!

From the archives but I've never posted this here before. This is a panorama of Double Arch in Arches National Park. 12mm fisheye lens, 10 vertical images, f/2.8, 30 seconds, ISO 10,000. This is basically a panorama of the inside of a spherical object. I’ve only done this a few times as there is infrequent need for this, but it is hands down the most fun panorama for me to do. It’s a bit more technically challenging than a standard pano. A panorama was done because I could not fit the entire scene on one frame, even with a 12mm fisheye lens and climbing the back wall (exciting in the dark!). In the past I had tried to do this pano with a 15 mm fisheye lens and still didn’t get as much coverage as I desired from top to bottom, so I returned 2 years later to try it with a new 12mm fisheye. This project took several hours to get the Low Level Lighting and positioning and exposures done. Unfortunately you pretty much need the location all to yourself or you’ll drive other people crazy running in and out of the arch. Anyway, I at least learned 2 new things. First, I could get the whole scene in a 12 mm pano but there was a lot more distortion to correct with the 12 mm fisheye compared with to 15 mm fisheye. Second, the distortion really depends on where you stand and even a few feet of difference can change the whole look of the results. It’s important to get level with the second arch to minimize distortion. So... now I want to go back and try again but it’s getting harder to get this location all to yourself these days.

My Arch Rock Panorama (above) was chosen as one of the 25 Top Photos of 2018 on Flickr, out of 400-500 million uploaded photos. This is largely due to your support, and I want to thank you.

This honor has an awfully lot to do with how many people are generous with their time, faves, and comments. No one would have even noticed without all kind feedback I have received, so I want to thank you all for your support. It is appreciated!

Cheers, and good shooting to all in 2019.

This is my one and only panorama of the aurora, taken in Signaldalen, Norway. The scene was just too wide for the lens I had, so I took a series on panorama shots with a 24 mm lens vertical. I really didn't have any hope this would work, so I never even bothered to process it until yesterday. Who knew a panorama of the aurora would even work with the lights moving around? Not me! Anyway I processed it just to see and was pleasantly surprised. 9 images. 24 mm lens, f 1.4, 10 seconds (too long!), and ISO 10,000. Canon 1Dx, Rokinon 24 mm 1.4 lens. And we get a peak of the Milky Way, yeah!
